Scholastic Debuts New Anniversary Edition Covers for Harry Potter

HarryPotterSocStone_AnniScholastic released new covers for J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series as part of its year-long campaign to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the U.S. publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Illustrated by Brian Selznick, the new paperback editions will be published on June 26 in the U.S.

Rendered in Selznick’s signature black-and-white style with jewel-toned type, the seven covers depict thrilling moments and characters from across the series. When placed side by side, the covers form a single image that tells the overarching story that begins with Harry’s arrival at Number Four, Privet Drive.

Scholastic originally published Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the U.S. in September 1998 under its Arthur A. Levine Books imprint. To date, the Harry Potter series has sold more than 180 million copies in the U.S. alone, and more than 500 million copies worldwide. The books are published in more than 200 territories in 80 languages. To mark the 20th anniversary, Scholastic will plan events throughout the year, including celebrations at bookstores, libraries, schools, and festivals nationwide.

Additionally, the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child arrives on Broadway this month; the British Library’s exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic opens at the New-York Historical Society in October; and the film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, debuts in theaters on November 16.

Scholastic will also publish J.K. Rowling’s original screenplay for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald in conjunction with the release of the film, as well as books tied to the New-York Historical Society exhibition.
